Publisher's Summary

We Bombed in New London tells the true story of one man's tenacious fight to get his musical mounted. From its romantic inception to its eventual demise and then the score's resurrection in cabarets and recordings, this audiobook takes you on a journey through the ups and downs of the theatrical world with all its excitement, disappointment, laughter, and hope.

Packed with memories, this book documents composer/lyricist Brian Gari's minute-by-minute development of his musical. Fortunately, he saved every scrap of paper, tape, and calendar to account accurately for why and when certain steps were taken that eventually led to the sad dissolution of this promising musical.

    "Interesting but bitter"

    Bought this during the discount sale and glad I did as after listening then listened to CD of the show. Wasn't that bad but as someone who goes regularly to theatre I can hear the flaws and it's a nice score. The book gives you a good insight into the life and painful death of a musical that perhaps could have been better off Broadway due to inexperienced people.
